on wednesday i took mum to chiropodists. who is very pleased how mums toe is looking,the infection seems to have cleared up,my dressing it every day has obviously done the trick,although the toe with the gout in bad,is still very sore,she had to cut the uric acid crystals out of it again. but at least mum doesnt have to go until july to see her again,unless it gets worse.so one less thing to worry about. we got home around 1.30 and after quick lunch i decided to finally go for it,and get all the hanging baskets and containers out of greenhouse and into their places. all looking good now,growing away madly. and my house looks great lol. afraid today i bought another 30 busy lizzies,so planted up another 3 hanging baskets and 2 troughs with them.they can keep in greenhouse until they get bigger. ok but watering is fun lol takes me good hour every night,they soon dry out my front faces south so bakes in sun all day long. i will post pics soon.
on thursday C mums volunteer visitor turned up,as promised at 2pm. i made them both a cuppa,and left them too it. i had planned on going to wells,but as i am rather skint,i decided instead to do the front garden,cut the hedge and lawn, and clean up. which i did. when i went indoors,nearly 2 hours later i found C and mum still talking lol got on like house on fire. so much so that c is coming next thursday. both seem to have enjoyed themselves, and mum was really pleased; so am i. bless her,her days are long,and a visit from someone makes it go so much quicker. i wish my neibours,who keep promising to call and see mum,would instead of promises get off their backsides and come round. i am sure he said sarcastically it's a coincidence, but 1 who used to come round without fail every 2 weeks, hasnt been to see mum since last year. just around the time i found out it was MS i had. now no-one is so bloody stupid as to think they can catch it off me?? surely not?? does make me wonder though. and she does seem to keep well away when i see her outside. hmmmm oh well. thats up to her. as for the old boy i take xmas lunch to,who also used to come and see mum,he also seems to be keeping away. maybe i should have UNCLEAN painted on front door??? lol kidding. gritted teeth mind.
well,it's whitsun bank holiday. which means holiday makers. as usual the roads were busy today, we went to fakenham tescos mum to charity shop to see friend as usual. we went early,and were home just after 2pm. now i have said this before, but new readers may have missed it. if you ever come to north norfolk,and explore our narrow back roads, and indeed some of our main roads, you will find a lot of these roads do not have a white line down the centre of the road. many are very narrow. now,just so you all know. if a road doesn't have a white line down the centre,it DOES NOT mean you can take up all the bloody road, neither does your car magically shrink so please, bloody well pull over i realise your nice new clean car may get a bit dirty having to go up grass but i stop to let idiots like you get by. the next one you meet may not. hence the pile of broken mirror glass on main road through village. its narrow lol 2 cant get by each other but they try. of course if they came through at the speed limit which is 20mph maybe they could stop quicker? oh well,rant over have a lovely,safe,bank holiday. take care all
